"Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence."

Errol Barnett Wiki, Family 

Born on 1983 in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, Errol celebrates his birthday on 3 April every year. Errol's childhood was not easy; at the age of only ten, Errol moved to the US with his mother, elder sister, and American stepfather. After a short period, his sister passed away, and his mother fell into depression. The condition of his family ended up being worse after his stepfather left the family.

He had to face many struggles during his early teens as he was very young when his sister died, and his family fell apart. So naturally, it was hard for a teenager to adjust and adapt to the new environment. To move on with life and forget about the challenges he faced, Errol took an interest in sports and extracurricular activities in school which ended up being therapeutic and helped him get distracted from time to time.
